County-Based Purchasing (CBP):

In 1997, rural counties in Minnesota won legislative approval for CBP.  Since that time, CBP organizations have played a key role in purchasing and/or providing Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) to rural Minnesota residents.  In 2018, CBP organizations serve nearly 100,000 rural Minnesota MHCP enrollees each month. In addition, CBP organizations have been successful in providing dependable access to care, enhancing health care quality, supporting health care innovation in rural areas, and coordinating with county social and health care services for more efficient and effective outcomes.  Maintaining legislative approval and support for CBP organizations is a chief public policy initiative of MACHP.
